Alexandra Trusova takes first place after a short program at the Russian Championship in Saransk, Anastasia Gubanova - the second, Alena Kostornaya - the third.
"Although I'm leading this competition, but I'm quite critical of myself." Lutz was not very, you need to finish the rotation. Yes, I did everything, but it is necessary that there are more pluses to all the tracks, the rotation was classy. I know that I can, so you need to ride better and cleaner. I will try to achieve this. This start is important to me, because I need to be selected for the World Junior Championships, I will try to do it. Preparations for this championship were held in the usual way, as for regular competitions," Sasha Trusova said.
The athlete said that she was impressed by the participation in the demonstration performances at the European Championships in Moscow.
- "I really liked the atmosphere. I tried to make a quadruple jump, but without a warm-up it did not go well. But I tried. I was pleased that, after an unsuccessful attempt, I was taken by the hand by skater Ondrej Hotarek, who invited me to take a picture with all the participants. It was not forgettable."
Thirteen-year-old Russian figure skater Alexandra Trusova for the first time in the history of women's single figure skating has performed the quadruple toe loop at official competitions.
This element was a success for the student Eteri Tutberidze, Daniel Gleyhengauz and Sergei Dudakov at the Junior World Championships in Sofia. In a free program Trusova cleanly performed two quadruple jumps - Salchow and toe loop.
For the first time Trusova tried to execute a quadruple toe loop in the Final of the Cup of Russia in Veliky Novgorod, but fell down on landing.
Earlier in the women's skating at the competitions only one quadruple jump was performed - Salchow - by the Japanese figure skater Miki Ando and the same as Trusova.
13-year-old Alexandra Trusova - Russian figure skater, who became the world champion among juniors in the tournament in Sofia. But the main achievement - she went down in history, first performing two quadruple jump in women's competitions. Previously, it was not possible for anyone, even in adult tournaments.
She played with roller skates. They were presented to her for a four-year birthday. Parents met her with serious resistance, trying to remove them from their daughter. Therefore, it was decided to give little Sasha to figure skating.
For 5 years Trusova was engaged in sports in native Ryazan. And then the family moved to Moscow. By the way, the reason for this was not the lack of opportunities for training, but family circumstances.
Alexandra is the oldest child in the family. She has two younger brothers, who are now 9 years and 3 years old.
Chihuahua named Tina - favorite dog Trusovoy. Alexander tries to take the pet with him to all European tournaments.
Our team made a splash at the World Junior Championships. All our gold, four medals, plus three silver and two bronze.
And one achievement that went down in history. Alexandra Trusova - the first in the world who at the competitions performed two jumps in four turns: salhov and sheepskin coat.
The 13-year-old girl twirled a free program so that she beat last year's junior world record. 15 points more than the one who won this tournament a year ago. And this, by the way, Alina Zagitova, our Olympic champion. Alina 15. Alexandra Trusova still has time to master the triple axel and quad lutz until the next league in the fall.
"I saw that she was nervous, but before I left the ice I asked her again: Sasha, what do you like most of all? She says: Jump.Well, I say: Go do what you love." Therefore, thank God, everything came together, the mood turned out to be excellent, and she did everything, "says Alexandra Trusova's trainer Daniil Gleichenhaus.
Eteri Tutberidze can teach how to cleanly and stably perform elements that not all men can do. Congratulations on the triumph of the world championship and wish new victories.
